One other thought from my bike ride yesterday.
I think the devstack interface we want for this is something like:
The ADDITIONAL_REPOS would be iterated through, cloned to DEST in
devstack at the branches specified.
Then we need a standard for the files in /devstack/, which is at least 1
extras.d file for running the project install, though we might also need
a vars file to be sourced.
